Homosexuals are Humans too

Satisfactory Essays
Fundamental rights that belong to an individual that the government may not interfere with are human rights. The person you chose to love should not be the government’s decision. The government shouldn’t deny you the right of marriage just because you want to be with someone of the same sex. Someone’s sexual orientation shouldn’t prevent them from getting married, being able to adopt children, or be the cause of not having any other rights that a straight person would have. Marriage is defined as a legal union that forms a familial bond. Marriage is just a title that a couple can have that shows how devoted and inlove they are with each other. Why is it so wrong that two people of the same sex would want to have that title? Some may say that marriage has a big part with religion. The bible says that a marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman. There are many different types of religions and everyone who wants to get married regardless of their religion can (if they are straight). In America one of our human rights is freedom of religion.(Sadowski). Now why is just one religion (Christianity) affecting the reason why two people can’t get married? Not saying that everyone who is gay doesn’t have a religion, just saying that gays are humans like everyone else. They deserve the rights and privileges that everyone else has. If marriage was so sacred then why do we have divorce? These ideas of a perfect union between man and woman are out dated. If two people show that they deeply care about each other enough to commit their life to one another then they should be able to get married. When it comes to parenting “two parents are better than one good parent, but one good parent is better than two bad parents. And gender make... ... middle of paper ... ...hts that gays would have. No one wants to be denied their rights that everyone should have. In conclusion denying anyone human rights is just wrong. Discriminating against someone because of their sexual orientation is wrong. We need to put an end to all of this, we need to move pass the judgment that our society has today. Love is love no matter what race or gender you are. Works Cited Clinton, Hillary R.
